Disability Report--Child--20 CFR 416.912--0960-0577--

    Sections 223(d)(5)(A) and 1631(e)(1) of the Social Security Act 
(Act) require Supplemental Security Income (SSI) claimants to furnish 
medical and other evidence proving they are disabled. SSA uses Form 
SSA-3820 to collect various types of information about a child's 
condition from treatment sources or other medical sources of evidence. 
State Disability Determination Services evaluators use the information 
Form SSA-3820 provides to develop medical and school evidence, and to 
assess the alleged disability. The information, together with medical 
evidence, forms the evidentiary basis upon which SSA makes its initial 
disability evaluation. The respondents are claimants seeking SSI 
childhood disability payments.
    Type of Request: Revision of an OMB-approved information 
collection.

    2. Cost Reimbursable Research Request--20 CFR 401.165--0960-0754. 
Qualified researchers need SSA administrative data for a variety of 
projects. To request SSA's program data for research, we require the 
researcher to submit a completed research application, Form SSA-9901 
(How to Request SSA Program Data for Research) for SSA's evaluation. In 
the application, the requesting researcher provides basic project 
information and describes the way in which the proposed project will 
further SSA's mission to promote the economic security of the Nation's 
people through its administration of the Old Age, Survivors, and 
Disability Insurance programs, or the SSI program. SSA reviews the 
application, and once we approve it, the researcher signs Form SSA-
9903, (SSA Agreement Regarding Conditions for Use of SSA Data), which 
outlines the conditions and safeguards for the research project data 
exchange. If the researcher uses the data for research and statistical 
purposes only, we require them to complete Form SSA-9902, 
(Confidentiality Agreement). SSA recovers all expenses incurred in 
providing this information as part of this reimbursable service. The 
respondents are Federal and State government agencies or their 
contractors, private entities, and colleges and universities.
    Type of Request: Revision of an OMB-approved information 
collection.

    3. Government-to-Government Services Online Web site Registration; 
Government-to-Government Services Online Web site Account Modification/
Deletion Form--20 CFR 401.45--0960-0757. The Government-to-Government 
Services Online (GSO) Web site allows various external organizations to 
submit files to a variety of SSA systems and, in some cases, receive 
return files. The users include State and local government agencies, 
other Federal agencies, and some private sector business entities. The 
SSA systems that process data transferred via GSO include, but are not 
limited to, systems responsible for disability processing and benefit 
determination or termination. SSA uses the information on Form SSA-159 
(GSO Web site Registration Form) to maintain the identity of the 
requestor within GSO. The organization can also modify its online 
account (e.g., address change) by completing Form SSA-160 (GSO Web site 
Account Modification/Deletion Form). Respondents are State and local 
government agencies, and private sector businesses.
    Type of Request: Revision of an OMB-approved information
